Incense, what did you preach at the church?
--He who endureth pain in the cause of others must rise from the mortal world to the spheres of immortality.
Incense, what does your perfume signify?
--My perfume is the evidence of my self-sacrifice.
Incense, tell me what moral is veiled in your nature?
--When my heart endures the test of fire, my hidden quality becomes manifest.
Incense, tell me the secret of your being.
--I am the heart of the lover of God, whose deep sign rises upward, spreading its perfume all around.
